    I walk in the room to see my baby girl for the first time.... She lays there so helpless, tubes down her throat and in her nose.  IV's are attached everywhere.I start to cry as the tears roll down my cheeks.   All I can think to do is sing to her as I did every day when she...

    It's funny to think that

    as we get older...u realize that everything does happen for a reason or purpose! When we accept that we're the authors to our own script in life.... You can start to wonder that all that u go thru is meant to be?! Isn't it all a question of attitude though? Instead if getting...

    Ride On A Train.

    Today is like every other day. I board the train quickly-can't be late. I choose a seat near the back. Few sit there. The light is broken, but that's fine. I don't need a light today. Alone I sit, lost in my thoughts, swirling, swirling. ..A slight noise startles me back to...

    Respectfully, I don't believe everything happens

    for a reason. I don't believe in coincidences, but neither do I believe that everything happens for a reason. I DO believe in synchronicity--which allows us the free will to choose--always--in everything, and those choices attract synchronous energy. For example, believing...

    Everything has a purpose,

    everything is here for a reason. The thing is, do you know what it is? Would you believe and accept it if someone could tell you what it is? Are you sure absolutely what you already believe about everything having a reason to exist in what happens? Because I know what it is.

    whatever you believe would lead to action which leads to outcomes…generally…sometimes things happens and we cannot explain…the mystery of LIFE. It's how you engage that is the deciding factor.
